So friggin bored and …. OWW wth?
Current mood: busy

So I’m sitting here with a surgical bootie on my right foot. Why you ask? Well I seem to have a stress fracture of my 2nd metatarsal on my right foot. Does it hurt? Holy fuck shit yes… Did I walk on it broken for 3 months going “Ow damn, that really hurts.” Yes like a retard I did.
Did the ‘emergency clinic’ when I went in tell me it was broken. No. Told me to see a podiatrist. Took a copy of my x rays to podiatrist, pointed out chip out of my bone on my iPhone, she says, oh yeah and there’s the crack. You have a stress fracture. Here wrap it up in an ace bandage (oh my god that feels great) and wear this ugly little black surgical bootie for 4 weeks. Wait what the fuck? 4 weeks? seriously? holy crap. So I’m gimpy. But man it feels so much better, and look, no searing needle pain of death when I walk. A bonus.

In other news of the weird, I’m now officially down 70 lbs and still counting. yay me. Salad gets awfully boring however. But fruit is frigginly low calorie and possibly the only thing keeping me from eating 3 bags of salt & vinegar potato chips. Mmm chippps…

In other news. I’ve put out a bulletin (newsletter) for my family association. (You can see it at Buffum Family Association Website) and I’ve also pressed this years editions of the Genealogical database and Historical documents. Yarrr. Now I’m working on a Quilted table runner, wine bag, and possibly a baby blanket for the reunion door prizes this year. I’m almost done with the runner. Which is good because it’s the most complex by far.

My garden is growing like crazy. I have had tomatoes out the wazoo. Off of one plant I am getting 4 or 5 tomatoes every 3 days. Crazy. The Red Bell pepper plant has produced 5 fruits so far, one was tasty I picked it green Heee, two wilted in the sun before I put up the sun shade, and two more are still growing and quite large now. I got one round of green beans off one of the plants, the other one died. The herbs are all doing great, the lettuce is now too bitter because of the heat, and the lemon & lime tree are spewing out their little growing fruits like mad. I will definitely get lemonade this year and not impact my lemons for other things. :) Limes will have enough for salsas, beer, and other uses ;)

Every thing else is going well, except my foot. :)
